Lexington. Mo.. Oct. 19. The biggest find

It was fortunate for many present that a
barbecue had been arranged, else they
would have gone hungry, for the three ho
tels and the eating-houses were swamped
with the demands on them.
A big excursion train of six coaches was
run by the Chicago and Alton to Marshall
from Kansas City, carrying crowds from
Jackson. Lafayette and Saline countlej In
to Marshall. Another was run by tho Mis
souri Paclflo from Versailles. Every road
leading to Marshall was alive with a holi
day crowd from early morning till late In
the afternoon. The Dockery party was
net at the train by a mounted delegation
from the Bhackleford Democratic Club and
try a reception committee In carriages dec
Brated with flags and bunting.

the Reception Committee. Marshall Is dis

the fact that Its Courthouse square 19 sur

as a boulevard In Buffalo. Ropes had been

There were strong delegations from every
one of the twelve townships In Saline
County. A crude uniformity, both In mounts
and decorations, was adhered to In the dele
gations. Each marshal horseman carried a
picture of Alexander Dockery, mounted as
a banner. Another delegation must have
tripped the county of white horses to get
its uniformity of mount. In another dele--vtion

For Forty Tears a Republican,
Captain Piggott Will Sow
Vote for Bryan.
Qnlncy. I1L. Oct. 13. Captain Michael
Piggott. & lifelong Republican, who for six
teen years prior to Cleveland's first term
was Postmaster here, has received a letter
from John J. Mealy of Chicago, a member
of the Republican Veterans' Yates Club
of Illinois, asking him to aid In the or
ganization of an auxiliary club.
Captain Piggott's reply Is In part as fol
lows: "For about forty years our political work'
and sympathy have been In accord, but
now I must say, no' to your appeal. I
could not follow "William McKlnley or his
supporters after he turned from freedom
to Imperial methods, and allowed his Sec
retary of State to reprimand Consul Gen
eral Pratt for presenting an American flag
to a Filipino commltteo at Singapore as
an emblem of the liberty that Agulnaldo
and their brothers, then our allies, were
fighting to attain. Then ho cabled an army
commission to W. K. Brico at Hong
Kong. In charge of the Brice syndicate con
cession In China. In order that he might
proceed at the expense of the nation and
In advance of our army to Manila, to turn
American guns against the Filipinos, In
order, that Republicanism might not dis
turb tho British colonies at the gates of
India, and to furnish a base from which
the Brice syndicate, organized by and
largely composed of Ohio politicians, co
operating with British capitalists, might
exploit the Chinese Empire; monolopllze Its
mineral resourceaand Its cheap labor.
T note what you say about Democracy
being the enemy of pensions, but I cannot
apply your objection to Democracy as now
organized. I am sure no Democrat could
do more to deprive the wards of the na
tion of their dues under the law than
has been done by the present Commissioner
of Pensions, who la held in his position
against the protests of more than IOO.OiO
soldiers. If successful In November. Hanna
will bo apt to follow the advice ot Cecil
Rhodes when he advised us to hold the
Philippines, and If the people grumbled
over the expense to abandon some of the
pension list which the Chicago Tribune last
March said. 'Is so unreasonably large." "

fifty hams, threo barrels of pickles and
twenty bushels of potatoes were consumed,

It had been planned that Mr. Dockery

to hear the speech could gain admittance.
Tho overflow was addressed in the Court
house square by Major R. W. Nichols of
Marshall, who in ISM was a Palmer and
Buckner elector, and stumped the State in
behalf of that ticket.
Mr. Dockery's speech was a presentation
of the reasons why the Democrats should
be retained In power In Missouri and placed
In power at Washington. The hall was too
tmall for the cheers and applause that
greeted the speaker's telling points. Con
gressman James Cooney introduced the
speaker, and declared his Impression that a

up by Missouri next month.

had killed a robber. The three citizens

the robbers steadily worked a way Into the

on tho outsldo who held rtspectlvo positions

heard the balls whistling near them. Two
balls struck the corner of the Blau
store and one buckshot struck tho
corner of the doctors' ofllco. As
nearly ns could be ascertained, fifty
shots were fired. Tlio number nas
about equally divided between tho two
parties. The robbers stopped firing first

In the letter, which is a brief one, Mr.

M. O'Flaherty was announced as the win

weight in the Coliseum last night.

not seem to like the Idea of his feat being

about himself, so that people might know
he was an athlete "in his day."
Father O'Flaherty has been in America
only three years. Previous to coming here
he was a winner In many weight-throwing
contests In Ireland, whero ho was cdticatrd
for the priesthood. He now holds1 the Irish
record for putting the tncnty-elght-pound

feet. He hns put the fifty-slx-pound

The athletic priest Is In favor of all kinds
of athletics, nnd Indulges In many forms
of exercise hlmelf. Including blcvcle nnd
horseback riding. As a high jumper he has
won events in I113 native country with
Jumps of slxty-dght Inches. An idea of how
good this Is may be gained from the fact
that both high jump events at the Coliseum
have been won with 8lxty--ight-inch Jumps.

that no possible harm can b.? done, and
